Automatic Driving Lessons Dronfield & Chesterfield

With electric cars being in the news and the deadline of 2030, where production of petrol and diesel cars cease to be made, electric cars will be the main way to drive and these can only be automatic, so it makes sense to learn in one now.

Taking automatic driving lessons is a nice way to drive, no stalling as no clutch, no rolling back on hills as no clutch, reducing a large part of the learning process, plus removing the stress in more pressured environments, plus the ease of driving around town or busy area’s. At busy junctions or roundabouts, once you have decided to go, just move your foot to the gas and go, no worry of stalling or rolling back.

Automatic driving lessons are ideal for everyone, however benefit people who are nervous, have anxiety or co-ordination issues or have tried to drive a manual and feel stressed or that they are failing. Driving should be enjoyable, allowing you to get from A to B with as little pressure as possible, allowing you to focus on the road ahead, making the right decision and not missing vital information.

Many people will tell you that automatic cars are expensive or “automatic drivers are not real drivers”, these people have clearly never tried an automatic. Automatic cars are as available as manual cars, plus insurance is generally cheaper, as less risk on the road and less risk of being stolen, as you cannot jumpstart an automatic car. Would it surprise you to know that 95% of driving is “Thinking” and 5% physical i.e the doing, so it does not make any difference whether you drive a manual, or automatic car, except you have more focus in an automatic, as less to do. Read what Sophie one of our clients thought about changing to automatic lessons, after her friends said “learning to drive in an automatic is cheating” ,Click this link.
